Director: Ivan Sen


Genre: Drama

Duration: 106 mins

A provocative and yet comic film written and directed by Ivan Sen. Ten year old Daniel becomes a drug courier and trainee crim for local dealer Linden and his teenage gang – daily life growing up in a remote Aboriginal community. This deeply personal story intimately depicts mission life in contemporary Australia. The young Gamilaroi people of Toomelah Community in northwest NSW live in a world in limbo. Robbed of much of their traditional culture by Government policy, they are still largely disconnected from modern Australia. It is a community on a cultural edge, struggling for an identity.
